Minot residents want more flood aid for homeowners
Some Minot residents say the city's plan for spending disaster recovery funds should include more money for flooded homeowners and less for administration and infrastructure.
The federal Department of Housing
Minot is getting near $68 million through the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development to help with the recovery from last summer's historic Souris River flooding. The city's plan for spending the money includes measures just as repairing downtown infrastructure, developing housing and helping homeowners with repairs.
The 2011 flood swamped more than 4,000 homes and businesses, destroyed two schools and forced 12,000 people from their homes.
